Sheads, a historian at Baltimore’s Fort McHenry National Monument and Historic Shrine, the flag was just a flag with no special meaning behind it before the poem (Poole). Hired under a government contract and helped by four others, Mary Pickersgill sewed two flags for the fort, a large garrison flag and a smaller storm flag (The Star-Spangled Banner Project). Made from white cotton and dyed English wool bunting, the garrison flag is later known as the Star-Spangled Banner (The Star-Spangled Banner Project). Pickersgill spent about six to eight weeks sewing the flag and delivered it to the fort on August 19, 1813, costing the government $405.90 for the garrison flag (The Star-Spangled Banner Project). The 30-foot by 42-foot flag made its inspiring appearance as it flew over Fort McHenry during the Battle of Baltimore (Edwin); it was still flying over the fort when the fighting ceased, damaged by bullets and shells (Georgiady and Romano 17).

The blue symbolizes perseverance and justice.
Only the colonial assemblies had a right to tax the colonies.” The Stamp Act caused the arrangement of the Sons of Liberty. The Sons of Liberty was a group that was organized in the Thirteen American Colonies. They were mostly shopkeepers and artisans that met during the summer of 1765 in Boston. They kept calling themselves the Loyal Nine, but soon changed into the Sons of Liberty. Their goal was to protect the rights of their colonists and to fight off the tax that the British required them to give.
There was also a reference that was made to the first Russian warship, the Oryol, and the red and white flag and a blue cross that had flown on its mast. The people loved this flag because of the supposed

Its mission was to produce citizen-soldiers who would be prepared for both civilian life and military service, yet this “mission” was not mandated by the State of Virginia. Even though VMI had a long-standing tradition in the State of Virginia with it’s all male, high stress school, that fact alone does not make it equal under the Fourteenth Amendment. Indirectly, VMI asserted that women were not equal, but inferior, to men, by assuming a female could not successfully complete the same high stress, rigorous educational experience. VMI had over 300 women apply to the school over the years, but they were never given an opportunity to

When none of the colonists thought of any ways to raise revenue themselves the Stamp Act was passed in 1765. On the other hand, in Britain, keeping a thousand and fifty soldiers during peacetime was unacceptable politically so they either had to discharge them or station in North America. Consequently, this was followed by the Quartering Act in 1765 in which the British ordered that colonists were to house and fed British soldiers when necessary. For the first time, the Stamp Act acted as the first real tax to be imposed on the colonies. The act required all official documents and that did not just include newspapers, almanac and pamphlets, but even decks of playing cards and marriage licenses to have the stamps.

Often when an Australian flag is draped behind a speaker, television will capture only the Union Jack on our flag. The distinguishing Federation Star and Southern Cross are not seen. This gives no indication of Australian history, or indeed any sign of Australia at all. We are not a British colony anymore. Why should we have the Union Jack on our flag, when it doesn 't represent us?
